piko kîkway ê-nakacihtât: He can do anything


Congratulations, Art Napoleon, on completing your MA at the University of Victoria, and thank you for letting me spread the good word about your work with language and culture – particularly with kids!

kimahihcihinân: You make us all proud.

It is a delight to share this link to Art’s UVic thesis: Key Terms and Concepts for Exploring Nîhiyaw Tâpisinowin the Cree Worldview – and to send a shout out to Art’s MA Advisor, UVic linguist Leslie Saxon.

This blog may not be big enough to list all of Art’s accomplishments (actor, musician, hunter, chef, former chief…) but watch out for him on APTN’s Moosemeat and Marmalade (which has a regular schedule for shows in Cree). And here’s a September 2010 story from the Globe and Mail (from before he even began his graduate work, which he seems to have finished in near-record time, too!)
